I was in fountain, doing a little ultralight fishing and I noticed that the signs at the lake said they contained "wipers", my question is has anyone caught any wipers recently from those little ponds ?..That would be fun on 2-4lb test LOL

Sorry PSB for no input on the ponds not familiar with the area enough. Hopefully some of the guys from that area will chime in.

Wipers are a kick!

A wiper on ultralight gear would be kick a$$!!
Meh! I don't get the light gear => more fun mentality. You are just going to exhaust those wipers and waste your time. If you don't intend to release that wiper, disregard the first part of that last sentence. Wipers are know to fight to exhaustion. A light line is only going to make matters worse. For the second part, wipers usually come in schools and where you find one, there are usually more. Get the fish in quickly and catch another one. Don't fight the fish for 20 minutes and miss the opportunity to catch more. Better to match the line to the fish. For wipers, I usually go with 12lb line. I have caught wipers on 6lb line. It's no fun (to me). Get the bigger line and apply some pressure on those fish. Feel a real tug on the line, instead of a light fizzle on a 2-4lb line. My not so humble opinion. :p

I fish there regularly. Usually every day on my lunch break. If you see a guy wearing a tie/slacks/dress shoes with a fly rod in his hand, it's probably me. I'm usually fishing for bluegill with my 00wt, but I have seen trout and a huge carp caught out of them there ponds ;) but I've never seen a wiper. good luck

Lunch hours are a great time to fish aren't they!

I've packed all my MH and M weight spinning rods already. These past 2 weeks have been UL only. I gotta tell ya, it has really been a blast. On my M weight Ugly Stik, that 9" gill would have flown out of the water. On my slow action UL, it was a real blast, mang. Same with the 18" carp from the WD40 contest.

The carp took me for a couple nice runs, and I'm glad it was on UL gear.

and the man with small penis award goes to...:rolleyes::D
Let me guess... I think I know the answer to that... To you? You got some real issues if everything comes down to penises. I like my fishing action to be fast and my highs to come quickly. Just a matter of personality. What was your point? Yah, I remember now, penises... ::):D Back to what I said: you like ice with beer, or you prefer straight bourbon?

and for the record I think your question was directed towards someone else. I just felt it necessary to get in on this conversation.

So why, oh why did you feel it necessary to get in? You like light tackle? You like sipping on diluted beer? Or maybe you got a complex? :biggrin1: Don't take the easy way out, big guy. Don't fizzle on me. :biggrin1: Or imma start to believe that every one here likes fizzling action.

I like lite tackle. I like heavy tackle. I like diluted beer. I like bourbon. Pretty eazy to get along with really. I just couldn't help myself when it came to your awesome bourbon straight out of the bottle comment. that is all. and I really don't get the fizzle stuff! so I can't respond to that part. Except that I really don't plan on fizzling on you!
